Event Description

Part Two of Annual Lecture Series 2018: Keep the Wheels Turning. Presented by Bill Calimer, Wheelwright, Calimer’s Wheel Shop, Waynesboro, Pa.

After a career in cancer research at Hershey Medical Center, Bill Calimer returned to Waynesboro and took over his father’s wheel and carriage shop in 1980. His father and grandfather were blacksmiths and wheelwrights, and Calimer had been around wheel-making all his life. Calimer’s Wheel Shop specializes in replacement wooden wheels for antique automobiles. These wheels require great precision and an expertise developed through experience. Calimer will share stories of his unique trade, including the hundreds of spoke patterns and the specific type of wood that is best for reproducing automobile wheels. He will discuss the process of creating by hand accurate, durable and strong wheels for vintage cars, ranging from the once-ubiquitous Model T Ford, to Stanley Steamers and even early Mercedes models. Free. For more information, visit www.renfrewinstitute.org, call 717-762-0373 or email to info@renfrewinstitute.org.

  1931 Cadillac 355A

Convertible Coupe     

by Fleetwood         

1930s elegance abounds with this fine 1931 Cadillac 355A Convertible Coupe. This CCCA Premier

Award-winning example has been fully restored to its original colors of

Viceroy Maroon over black

fenders and chassis, as indicated

on the original build sheet. It is

finished to a high standard and remains in excellent condition

today. It is a lovely machine with

fine quality paintwork and detailing. Of the eleven standard body styles available, the Convertible Coupe

by Fleetwood ranks among the

most desirable on the 355 chassis. Its sporting, elegant appearance

recalls carefree playboys enjoying the trappings of their wealth as the

roaring twenties came to a close. The convertible coupe combined the

style and open air experience of

the roadster, but with the

additional comfort provided by

roll up side windows and a more substantial folding roof and more luxurious trim. As with most

355-series Cadillacs, our example

is well-equipped with dual

sidemount spares topped with

Cadillac mirrors, a mesh radiator

stone guard, Goddess mascot

and a pair of Senior Trippe Light driving lamps. While the

restoration is approaching two decades old, the exterior

cosmetics remain very strong,

and this example presents very

well indeed.
